  Molecular regulation of surface remodelling in the human pathogen Schistosoma mansoni
  Prof A Walker
Applications accepted all year round
In this PhD project you will perform cutting edge research that aims to identify molecular signalling events that underpin the survival of schistosomes in their human host.
  Novel strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of snakebites
  Dr S Vaiyapuri
Applications accepted all year round
Snakebites represent a major neglected tropical disease affecting several million people worldwide and resulting in as many as 150000 deaths each year.
  Effect of oxidative stress on the biochemistry of dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP)-lyase enzymes in tropical reef organisms - to start October 2019 - for an MSc by Dissertation (MSD
  Dr M Steinke, Dr M Hough, Dr J Worrall
Application Deadline: 24 April 2019
Rationale. Tropical coral reefs are a substantial source of the climate-cooling gas dimethyl sulfide (DMS). The major precursor of DMS is the secondary metabolite dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) that is biosynthesised to high concentrations in symbiotic dinoflagellates of the tropical genus Symbiodinium [1].
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Non-adherence in chronic conditions (initially tuberculosis): a quantitative, methodological, approach
  Research Group: Centre for Global Health Research
  Dr H Stagg
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Background. Non-adherence to prescribed medications is an international problem with major implications.1 It is, however, frequently unrecognised.
  Cardiac Structure and Function in Septic Patients
  Dr D Oxborough, Prof J Somauroo, Dr J Rylance
Applications accepted all year round
Cardiovascular function is altered in sepsis though effects of infection including peripheral vasodilatation, and alterations to the endothelium and glycocalyx, and upon the myocardium.
  Rapid Synthesis of Fluorinated Drug Scaffolds
  Dr G Weaver
Applications accepted all year round
This project will involve the synthesis and characterisation of new heterocyclic compounds which can act as core scaffolds for drug development.
  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round
Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  Exploiting CRISPR/Cas9 for the Control of Parasitic Nematode NTDs
  Dr L Atkinson, Dr A Mousley, Prof A Maule
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
This project will be supervised by Dr Louise Atkinson, Dr Angela Mousley, and Professor Aaron Maule of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences.
  What drives outbreaks of midge-borne viruses in the UK?
  Dr C Sanders, Prof M Baylis
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
In recent years, viruses transmitted by biting midges have become increasingly important to livestock farming in the UK. Thousands of these tiny flies are present on farms across the UK and incursions of bluetongue virus and Schmallenberg virus have a significant economic impact on animal production.
